This text provides full coverage of the property, trusts and succession parts of the LLB syllabus in Scottish universities in one convenient volume. The relevant rules of statute and common law are surveyed and frequent examples used, making this a highly practical and accessible text.

The fifth edition is revised throughout. It covers key recent case law and major legislation developments. These include the Moveable Transactions (Scotland) Act 2023 and the Trusts and Succession (Scotland) Act 2024.

As well as thorough coverage of these important new pieces of legislation the fifth edition also includes a new chapter on public law and landownership, which considers issues such as planning, licensing and environmental law restrictions.
